Mindfulness meditation practice creates expansiveness and openness in our day-to-day lives. A spacious mindfulness practice can benefit a sense of larger perspective, bigger picture, and broad landscape that often can soothe the mind and calm the heart. The invitation is to be present one more moment, one more hour, one more day -- to allow the boundless qualities of Life to arise and remind us that a clear mind and open heart are possible even in the most complicated circumstances.
This will be a silent meditation retreat and the practice of Mindfulness will be experienced through silent sitting, walking, movement, and eating meditations. Open to all levels of meditation-new, beginner, or experienced. You do not have to call yourself a Buddhist to benefit from meditation. Please join us, get on a cushion or chair, settle your mind, keep your heart open, and see what you discover!
Spirit Rock extends a special invitation to young adults (age 18-26) who wish to attend this retreat at a rate of $25 per night, on a first come, first serve basis. A limited number of special rates are available, please apply early.
